Stannard Post has lost one of its oldest members, Morris Flannagan, aged 80 yrs., who died last week. He was born in Limerick, Ireland and enlisted at the age of 18 in the English army, 39th foot. He served 15 years in Jamaica and returned to England when he was sent to Nova Scotia returning home, and was discharged in Templemore, county of Tipperary, Ireland. He came to Burlington some fifty years ago, and in 1861 enlisted in Co. F, 6th Vt. Vols., serving throughout the war. He was wounded in the eye, leg, jaw and arm in the battles of Antietam, second Fredericksburg and the Wilderness, serving in all the battles in the Vermont brigade until so thoroughly disabled by wounds that he was transferred to the veteran reserve corps during the latter part of the war.
